Sew Special

Some time ago I made a card using pink, kraft and silver. I thought to use it again with this month Stamping Sensation challenge where theme is: Sew Special with stamping. 

This month's prize for one very lucky winner is a generous £35 store voucher from.....................

Stamp Addicts is a family run business based in Bedfordshire and have been in business since 1992. We have watched the popularity of rubber stamping and all papercrafts steadily increase over time and now manufacture our own branded rubber stamps which frequently feature on Create and Craft TV as well as craft shows across the UK.

And a second prize of a pair of tickets to the November Hobbycraft show at the NEC.

The heart is stamped with Versamark ink to the white cardstock and it's heat embossed with Opaline embossing powder. It leaves glossy clear finish with nice shimmer. I added Wanr Lipstick Distress ink all over it and fussy cut the heart out. 
The silver heart behind is die cut out of white cardstock with Sizzix die. It's inked with Versamark in and heatembossed with Tinsel EP. 
For the largest heart I used Sizzix die as a template to draw the shape to the cardboard. After cutting it out with scissors I peeled off the top layer to reveal the corrugated cardboard. I added some white paint here and there. 

The sentiment is designed in computer and printed out. It says: "You are so special". I thought about adding some wordplay to the sentiment but still left it as it is. If I had added "t" behind the word "nii" it would say "thread". 

Pink lace layer is made the same way as the pink heart. I used Viva Decor Vintage Lace stamp. Swirls on the background are stamped with Viva Decor Floral Embellishments stamp and Versamark ink to the kraft cardstock. Its heat embossed with Tinsel EP. 

All the piercing is made with Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles dies. I draw faux stitching with white gel pen. Ass embellishments I used some pearls, silver twine and lace. 

Materials used:
Stamp credits: Artemio
(Heart), Viva Decor (Floral Embellishments, Vintage Lace)
